Aurélie Groizeleau and Hollie Davidson have been selected to referee this weekend as Italy and Ireland play their first 2021 Women’s Six Nations bows.
Italy will be up against the Red Roses who will be looking to secure the top spot in Pool A and a place in the final on Super Saturday.
French referee Groizeleau will be in charge supported by assistants Doriane Domenjo and Francesca Martin, while Neil Paterson will be keeping an eye on the TV from the TMO booth.
Italy v England is the first of a Saturday double-header, with the Pool B clash between Wales and Ireland starting at 5pm in Cardiff.
Wales will be looking to respond to their 53-0 defeat to France in Round 1, while Ireland are gearing up for their first taste of action this year.
Scottish referee Davidson – who refereed her first Guinness PRO14 game last month – will preside over the action at Cardiff Arms Park.
She will be supported by assistant referees Sara Cox and Maria Pacifico, while Marius Mitrea is in the TMO’s chair.
